The Burdekin Shire Council’s newsletter Council in Focus will be found in the centre of tomorrow’s The Burdekin Advocate (13/8).
Mayor Bill Lowis said Council had previously mailed the quarterly newsletter to each resident, but this was becoming costly.
“Basically we are halving our quarterly expenditure by inserting the newsletter into our local paper,” he said.
“In the past you would see a lot of the newsletters just thrown in to the bin, so this change will prevent that sort of wastage as well as save money.
“Council is investigating the establishment of a database of residents who would prefer to have the newsletter sent to them via email.”
There also will be copies of the newsletter at Council Chambers, Burdekin Library and residents can download the pdf version from Council’s website.
